Accrington v Rawtenstall
Saturday May 9th 1959

Rawtenstall professional Eddie Fuller took 6-45 to bowl his side to a 28 run win at Accrington. Solid batting by Fuller (42), Kenny Barnes (26) and Gordon Kemble (20) took the visitors to an all out score of 156. Jim Eland picked up his second seven wicket haul of the season against Rawtenstall at a cost of 49 runs. Eland's earlier haul of 7-34 is still the outstanding bowling performance by an amateur this season. Home professional Bobby Simpson hit an entertaining 77 but the Australian became one of Fuller's six victims after hitting nine boundaries. Tommy Cunliffe (12) was the only other Accrington batsman in double figures. Scorecard
